[DEAD] BBC's Planet Earth [HD DVD] (David Attenborough version) - $29.99

The store for PBS is having a clearance on these. Although the Discovery Channel (Sigourney Weaver version) has been at or near this price point, this is one of the lowest prices seen for the uncut original BBC version with Sir David Attenborough on HD-DVD.

They have a further 15% off Earth Day promotion good through 4/28 so it's in the cart for $25.49. Shipping is ~$4.95 and no tax in my area. $30.44 total price.

EDIT: Nice find OP!

Thanks, OP. I almost bought this from dvd.co.uk for about $38.00 shipped.

Now I just have to sell my SD version.

Well, it said it was "in stock" when I ordered it but now it says it's "backordered" on my order so I wonder if I'll get it. And it still says it's "in stock" on the product page.

Mine did too until I checked back a few hours later. I also got a backordered email.

I just have to wonder if they'll ever get the HD DVD back in stock.

Wow, the link doesn't even go to the product anymore. I guess this clearance sale was a complete success from PBS's perspective and they sold all they had.

I tried picking one up. Got the backorder notice. I really hope they ship.

Did anyone order one without getting a backorder notice?

My e-mail said it was an advance sale, so I think it might be an overstock they are getting in on a certain date, but they have the page wrong because it's a title that's already released.

I ordered late afternoon and as of now, I didn't receive a backorder email. Now that I've said it, I'm sure it will show up any minute now....

I called today and asked if I was really going to get this backordered item. I was assured I would and that if they weren't able to get more they would have told me and canceled the order.

I remain somewhat skeptical but hopeful that it's true.

Well, there's just a lot of us who went red early on and the scuttle is the PE BBC version is great material to show off HDM. Price is ultra cheap when compared to the BR version. I'm going to ride this one out until my A35 dies and cherry pick from the best (and cheapest) each format has to offer.

It's hard to say. It may be that all of the retail stock will be sold by this summer. This is a highly popular HD release.
